What Is Mario vs. Donkey Kong?

Mario vs. Donkey Kong is a puzzle platformer that puts you in the shoes of Mario and has you progress through a series of levels. Your goal is to collect mini-Mario toys, pick up a key, and bring it to a locked door to reach the next level.

Along the way, you’ll have to activate switches, bounce on springboards, watch for falling blocks, and navigate moving platforms to reach new areas. It’s a colorful game made of smaller self-contained levels that require more brain power than your standard Mario platformer. The original GBA game spawned several sequels on Nintendo DS, 3DS, and Wii U.
